Thanksgiving for Thousands is a record-breaker

Hundreds of volunteers work Mountaire assembly lines to pack meal boxes for those in need
November 25, 2021

More than 150 volunteers turned out Nov. 22 to pack food boxes during the annual Mountaire Farms Thanksgiving for Thousands program at the Selbyville warehouse.

By the end of the day, those volunteers packed each of the 10,000 boxes with a meal for a family of four. All boxes were loaded into refrigerated trailers and transported to sites throughout Sussex County for distribution to families in need.

In all, at distribution events on Delmarva and in North Carolina, Mountaire will distribute 26,000 meals, the most ever in the more than two decades of the event.
